Are you organising a group birdwatching break with other keen birders?

Group Accommodation has a great selection of holiday properties in a range of accessible UK birdwatching destinations and wetland reserves. South West England offers many great sites, including Chew Valley Lake; the Avon Gorge; and Willsbridge Mill. You’ll find some great spots in Wiltshire, such as Braydon Forest and Cotswold Water Park. Somerset and Dorset are other great options, with the likes of Salisbury Plain and Abbotsbury Swannery. Both Southern and Northern Scotland offer huge potential for birdwatching holidays, with some 50 National Nature Reserves to explore. In North Wales, Snowdonia is a birdwatcher’s paradise. In East Anglia, the beautiful Suffolk Heritage Coast is well-known as an excellent spot for birdwatching all year round, including sightings of some of Britain's more unusual species.

Fancy identifying some more exotic species?

You could consider a birdwatching holiday in Spain, France or elsewhere in Europe. Andalucia in southern Spain is well known for its rich bird life, particularly birds of prey, while France offers a wide variety of habitats from the mountains of the Alps and Midi-Pyrenees to coastal regions such as Provence.
